I’m looking forward to seeing you at the upcoming Chapter Meeting on Sunday, October 19th.
The schedule is below. We’ll start off by reading new music. Take a break. And then read through the performance pieces for the Holiday Presentation at the Harold Washington Library in December (Date TBD).
All of the music for the October Meeting can either be purchased (publication info below) or printed off the Chicago Chapter website at <http://chicagorecorders.org/events/music-for-october-meeting-and-library/>. (Some of you may have some of the music from last year’s library holiday performance and won’t need to print it again!) We can always share too!
You may want to bring a CHICAGO RECORDERS folder/binder (if you don’t already have one) to keep your music organized.
All the best,
